    I have an old Cobra 19 LTD and was wondering if anyone knew of any mods that can be made with this radio? I also have an old Palomar 250 that I used to run with it once upon a blue moon.

    This is the forum for discussing Amateur radio mods, NOT CB mods. Go to the CB section.

    Align it, fix anything that's broken, fix/replace scratchy pots.

    Ensure that modulation is set to 90-100%.

    If you're driving to an amplifier, you should make your output power variable.

    If you want to use it alone, consider the IRF520 mod.

    @office888 - Thanks for the reply. It was given to me by my Dad and I would love to keep it in tip top shape.

    @kd8dvr - I apologize for posting in the wrong place. Can you move the topic for me?
